I think...

Because you are using the pressed() signal your modal dialogs are being
created while you still have the mouse button pressed. When you release
the mouse button, the event is going to the dialog (and being discarded)
and not the QPushButton. Use the clicked() signal instead.

Your script also triggers and unrelated bug in the SIP library. I'm
about to commit the fix to this to the CVS.
